OUP India (2011)
|Abstract||This book upholds the idea of learning and education as a means to individual development and social empowerment. It presents a holistic picture, looking at learning as an integral part of one's social and physical life. Strongly differing from existing classroom perspectives, the book analyses integrated learning at its broadest possible imperative-arguing for a spontaneous learning environment within real-life contexts. The book broadly covers: " Creativity in classroom education with a focus on interdisciplinary approach and positive teacher-student interaction " The essence of good education with a deep concern for the impact on the social order " Teachings of Indian and Western educational thinkers-Gandhi, Confucius, Plato, Freire, and Tagore-and their commitment to individual well-being " Application of learning to real-world situations Accessible and reader-friendly, it will be an indispensible resource to students and teachers of educational studies and to the general reader interested in the true spirit of education.|
